Again, i will like to emphasize that these below affects the final result of your eyes:

1) how well you recover
2) how well you take care of your wound
3) the skill of your doctor

So, if you are talking about (3) only, then yes, i personally recommend. But again, you will be the one to decide who you want to go to.

scorpion grass

Postby Broke » Fri, 14 Apr 2006 1:32 pm

scorpion grass ? where can I find it?


jovinliu wrote:Nose: cold press for 5 days, i think. After that is warm press to reduce bruising.

Eyes: cold press for 1 week. Don't apply warm press!

As for the scorpion grass medicine, please do not sukak-sukak boil and drink! Yes it's proven to reduce bruise and swell fast, but also, you might get diarrhoea! It's said to upset the stomach quite abit. So unless you are staying indoor, with nobody snatching toilet with you, then maybe you can try. But, this herb is very "cooling", so, as i said earlier, don't sukak-sukak buy and drink!

I personally tried Sinecch, well, i think seems to work quite ok. I had posted Rachel's phone number before. Call her to buy a box. No point going to Watson's, Guardian blah blah blah, you won't find a box of Sinecch on the shelf smiling and waving at you.

For my eyes, yes i'm doing fine. Thanks for all concern.

perhaps jovin can give a better "real-life" account.

but from what i have read so far, you need a cold press for the first 3 days, and a "warm press" for the subsequent days (perhaps warm towel, etc?).

there's medicine for you to reduce swelling, and many people buy a herb known as scorpion grass (literal translation from chinese). heard that it's really good.

i am soooooo looking forward to having my rhinoplasty and double eyelid surgery in oct/nov!

Blepharoplasty by Dr Wong

Postby UglyDuckling » Fri, 14 Apr 2006 10:19 pm

Hi,
have anyone has had blepharoplasty done by Dr Wong of Gleneagles before? After reading from past post (dated back to 2004), i understand he is a very experienced doctor, does a natural job and his quotation is reasonable. However, I need a more recent feedbacks on his operation. How’s the result? Any comments?

i always wanted to do eye enlargement, and liposuction, for tummy, saddlebag & inner/outer thigh areas, a rhino & lip & teeth lightening.

Dun think can do all together. Hope to do eye enlargement and lipo for tummy and teeth whitenng first for a start.

I heard the average rates for lipo is about S$3k & teeth whitening about S$600 in Bangkok but haven ask around for eye enlargement. How much would it cost roughly?

I'm currently saving up and has abt $10k+ savings after 2 years. Wonder if it's enough to pay for all the aforesaid procedures?

It's ok which one you want to do first. Anyway eyebrow embroidery is not even considered a surgery, so no problem! So, whether you do eyebrow embroidery first or after getting your eyes and nose done, it's ok. Don't worry.

Sorry I've not taken any photos after getting my eyes done... but seriously, you need up to 1 year to see the final result of the surgery, so it's no point you view a person's photo who just did his/her eyelid surgery. It's not the final result.

Wah! Eye enlargement, and liposuction, for tummy, saddlebag & inner/outer thigh areas, a rhino & lip & teeth lightening....
Big project leh! Hee...

For eye enlargement, again, there is a procedure call "kai yan tou" in taiwan which i believe is not common here in singapore. But, it's fairly common there. The japanese singer, Ayumi, she did it.

Please do your homework before going for liposuction. Don't go for the traditional one. The latest technology will draw about 3-5% of blood with the fat, whereas traditional method will be as much as 30%. If you are going to do in Bangkok, please ask first! Also, the traditional method takes longer healing time. For liposuction on thigh area, please be prepared to have difficulties walking for at least 2-3 days. Youare right that the average rate for lipo is about $3k PER AREA. So if you do tummy, saddlebag and thigh area, be prepared to fork out about $10k. Yes, you can go to Siam Family Dental Clinic for laser whitening. Yah, about $600. They used to have promotion at $450, not too sure wonder they still offer that rate now.

To enlarge eyes, you have to do double eyelid + kai yan tou surgery. Consult your doctor on what you want to achieve, and whether you are suitable.

I hope you are not going to do all those you mentioned, in 1 shot?! That means you are going to get bandaged almost from top to toe leh! I seriously don't encourage plastic-surgery-wannabes to be too ambitious and do all procedures at 1 go. You will have a hard time during recovery, and you will feel terrible when you look at the mirror. You are not joining Extreme Makeover, are you? :P The $10k+ you saved should be enough to put you through those surgeries, but your body will have a hard time recovering and adapting.

Lip lightening?! Hmmm.... interesting! Never heard of that before. Tell me tell me!!!! :D
